    Some great photos in the ni hall of fame.

    I just wanted to share the Hall of Fame photos from NI. Really great work there. I wish I had the skills some of these photographers have.

    nikonimages.com - The photo gallery.

    I gotta say that there is a very small number of good shots there and a lot of total horrors: some vastly overcooked, some with extreme HDR, some with waaay too much 'fun with filters' and a lot which is compositionally inadequate and relies on super-saturation to carry the impact. I think the average standard in the Fun With Nikon Images thread here is much higher!

    I think you were being quite polite with your other comments about the so called "hall of fame".

    "total horrors' is about as rude as I'm willing to be in public. Gimme a call and I'll let rip!

    While I have the same mixed feelings I must say this is unfortunately the situation for a lot of "famous shots" today ....

    I agree - some of the images are not particularly great. Interesting to see the camera and lens choices when posted. Often not the top of line, but there are some terrific images associated with them! I think there is a point to be made here . . . . . .

    While there are plenty of overdone HDR images and others that may be way, way, way overdone and poorly composed, I did find quite a few outstanding images just viewing the first 15 or 16 pages in the "Hall of Fame" area. Like any photo site there is going to be a mix of good and horrible. I was pleasantly surprised to see several of shtarka1's (Steve Mark's) photos there which, IMHO is top quality.

    +1. Particularly regarding the second sentence. It's a pity we have the pleasure to see Steve posting his pictures here at GetDPI rather seldom for some time, whatever the reason(s) may be.

    Re: Some great photos in the ni hall of fame.

    I prefer my images medium-rare.
    I was horrified at the judging of a local camera club monthly competition.
    It seems like unless the images are over-cooked, or HDR (to the extreme) or had some other unnatural look about them, they were cut.
    Is this the effect of the instagram generation I wonder.

    Those images look great to me. Make great posters or calendars.
